The Ayers Leather Shop has been in Greenville at the corner of North Main and West North Street for 40 years, but now they have relocated into a bright new storefront just a few steps down West North Street, across from Rush Wilson Limited. They are very happy with their new store. The business has been in the Greenville area and operated by the family for 64 years.

Ayers Leather Shop offers a selection of leather goods, gifts, and art items unique to Greenville.

Greenville

The Reedy River flows through Downtown Greenville, just before dipping over a collection of rocky waterfalls. Greenville is located in the "Upstate" region of South Carolina. Here, Falls Park, which hugs the Reedy River, is a scenic parkland paradise of large waterfalls, scattered boulders, and manicured green spaces situated at the heart of a thriving central business district offering diverse restaurants, interesting shops, and luxurious hotels. A striking pedestrian bridge, a children’s downtown scavenger hunt for hidden bronze mice, and lots of shade trees also add to Downtown Greenville’s allure.

These murals are painted on the SaveMart at the gateway to the Poe Mill community as part of the community revitalization. Elements of the murals were suggested by the F.W. Poe Textile Heritage Society to tie them into the community’s past as a center of textile production.

The murals were painted by Adam Schrimmer, with community members assisting under his direction.

The Poe Mill Neighborhood Association and members of the community worked together to plan several murals at the gateway to the Poe Mill community. The purpose was to take an important step to revitalize the neighborhood and add a sense of neighborhood pride. The theme was chosen in a series of neighborhood meetings, and community members helped in preparing the wall surfaces for the murals.
